Development of the English alphabet Featured Print

Development of the English alphabet

Development of the English alphabet. The Old Greek alphabet derived from Phoenician and was in use by 900-800 BC. A western variant, known as the Euboean or Cumae alphabet, was used between the 8th to 5th centuries BC. The Etruscans adopted it and spread writing within the Italic peninsula, leading to the development of the Latin alphabet by the Romans. Uncial was used by Latin and Greek scribes (4th and 8th centuries AD) and was written in capitals, as other alphabets. Minuscule cursive (lower case) script developed from rapidly written versions of uncial, incorporating the linking of letters in the 4th century AD. Table from The Story of the Alphabet (Edward Clodd, 1900).

'Title Page of the Geneva Bible', 1614, (1943). Creator: Unknown

'Title Page of the Geneva Bible', 1614, (1943). The "Geneva" version of the Bible is significant because it was the first mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible in English which was available directly to the general public in Britain. In Scotland, a law was passed in 1579 requiring every household of sufficient means to buy a copy. This was a complete change from the previous position of the state which made printing or publishing the Bible in anything other than Latin a crime punishable by death. Published by Robert Barker, printer to King James I, (London, 1614). From "The English Bible", by Sir Herbert Grierson. [Collins, London, 1943]
